Almost Always is a group consisting of artist/producer Curbside Jones and producer Corey Arnell. We decided to become a group in Nov of 2011 because we both share the same views of success and a passion for making the type of music we want. Because of our history of doing songs together we have built some good chemistry and we’re ready to showcase it. We are currently in the process of putting together an EP that will be released in the Summer of 2012. This promo video is a sneak peak of our 1st official single “Hot Chicks x Arcade Sticks (Round 2)” which will be premiered on analoghype.com on Jan 6th, 2012. This is the 2nd installment of our listener fave which appeared on Curbside Jones’ “The Cherry Blossom Effect: Endless Dream Theory” ( http://cbtvondemand.bandcamp.com/track/hot-chicks-x-arcade-sticks-prod-by-corey-arnell )

This album was made in 7 days. Yeah, that’s right..1 beat a day for the course of 1 week. It is in dedication to the anime/manga series, Soul Eater and also contains sampled material from the anime’s OST. This is my 1st beat tape and I’ve decided to re-release it because I’ve been in a good mood lately, and…I’ve been watching Soul Eater lol The album was originally made and released in 2010 (Aug). THIS IS NOT NEW MATERIAL
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO USE ANY OF THESE BEATS PLEASE CONTACT EMPTYSODACANS@GMAIL.COM AND PLEASE USE CURBSIDE JONES FOR PRODUCER CREDIT…THANK YOU! DON’T BE A DOUCHE.

Despite the fact we got THRASHED by 1 person, fun was still had! Make sure you make it out and play some rounds! Visually the game looks like Tekken 6, BUT I’m sure it will be stepped up before the release. Players facial expressions and outfits have been taken in to consideration, as characters actually get dirty in this game. I’m hoping to see stage x character interaction like DOA…wishful thinking huh? The roster isn’t bad, bringing back old characters and new.
This is the pt.2 of my documentary series I started in October of this year. The 1st video ( http://youtu.be/Qyb-RIxWfnY ) touched on my thoughts of success and the events that have taken place after the release of my album “The Cherry Blossom Effect: Endless Dream Theory”. Part.2 is a look into the fun/adventurous side of me. The video showcases the downtown life of Austin Texas (legendary 6th Street) during the 1st night of Halloween weekend. The song playing during the video is a remix of “Pairadice” that didn’t appear on the Remix Album because I had bigger plans for it. The track was produced by an Austin producer Miraculous Jon ( http://www.twitter.com/MiraculousJon ) who I met through a friend. The track is by far one of my favorite remixes and I can tell he put alot of time and effort into the mix ^___^. Pt.3 and Pt.4 will be available in January!
Here’s a new idea I’ve been working on. I want to interview otaku and gamers and showcase them on this site. The ideas is to shed some light on two cultures that many aren’t knowing of. I hope this will build a better understanding between fans and those who want to know about each. I would like for those interested to please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org THANKS!!
I’d like to start this off by saying I know it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these, I’ll try to be more efficient in the future…school has been beating me up.
Toradora is your typical high school genre anime…WRONG! It in fact has many elements that help it stand on it’s own as a good series. I was skeptical at 1st when I started watching it because I was worried it being slow, and cliche, boy was I wrong! I won’t spoil the plot, but the drama is based around a love square between students that attend the high school. The plot of the anime shows it’s pretty little face in episode 1 and stretches the WHOLE series. Unlike most love influenced material Toradora! Does not come off as cheesy, or unbelievable. The characters emotions and are VERY, VERY moving and are actually what drives the anime. I couldn’t help but get involved with each character as they developed right in front of my eyes. I’d have to say Taiga is one of my favorite characters in the series and the one who develops the most. The music of Toradora! isn’t very moving, it’s actually almost nonexistent during the anime. The openings and closings are great, the soundtrack itself is pretty cool…sadly that music isn’t used to it’s full potential. The comedy of the series is very evident, it’s not fall to your knees while crying funny, BUT it is enjoyable. If episodes 8, 19, and 24 don’t make you almost tear up…you have NO soul.
Plot progression through out the series.
Bright, consistently good artwork.
Although it’s a Shounen it doesn’t come off as cliche.
3D characters that viewers can relate to.
Not only does the protagonist face issues, other character’s lives are shown to us.
Peripheral characters have their own personalities and are able to stand out.
TOOOOOO SHOOOORT 25 episodes wasn’t enough for me.
Some of the humor was good, but it wasn’t ROTFLMAO funny.
The soundtrack should have played a bigger role in the series since it is actually pretty good.
Final Rating: 4/5
